TORRINGTON RESIDENT GETS THE "STAR" TREATMENT, WINS $1,000,000 TOP PRIZE!
January 3, 2016
Torrington resident Patrick Fuoco, Jr. wasn’t expecting to receive the “star treatment” when he strolled unassumingly into the lobby of the CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill, but that he did—when he claimed the first $1,000,000 top prize in the Lottery’s “STAR” instant game. “After I scratched the [STAR] ticket and saw I won $1,000,000, I basically just circled my kitchen for 3 hours,” Fuoco told Lottery officials with a laugh. “It didn’t seem real…it still doesn’t seem real!”

STAR’s $1,000,000 top prize is payable as a 20-year annuity or a one-time cash lump-sum. Given the choice, Fuoco opted to claim his prize in a one-time cash lump-sum of $774,740 (value before taxes). 

“I’m not really sure what I will do with the prize yet,” said Fuoco. “I’ll probably fix up my house and put the rest away for retirement.”

Fuoco purchased his top prize winning STAR ticket at Sunoco Food Mart located at 882 East Main Street, Torrington. For selling the ticket, Sunoco Food Mart will receive a $10,000 check from the CT Lottery.
